Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg LLC has been operating in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug since 1984. The company history started with the Yamburgskoye oil, gas and condensate field development. Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg LLC ranks the fifth in the world in terms of initial reserves of the Yamburgskoye field — 6,9 trillion cubic meters of gas.

First gas from Yamburg was shipped to the trunk pipeline on September 22, 1986. The Yamburgskoye field includes 9 comprehensive gas treatment units (CGTU), 5 pre-treatment units.

In the long term, raw hydrocarbons will be supplied from adjoining to Yamburg gas bearing areas to the released capacities of the Yamburgskoye field. Among them are the fields in the offshore area of the Ob and Taz bays.

The Zapolyarnoye oil, gas and condensate field is one of the largest in the world. Its initial reserves account for more than 3,5 trillion cubic meters of gas, some 60 million tons of gas condensate and 20 million tons of oil. Commercial production of the Zapolyarnoye field began with the development of the Cenomanian deposit in 2001. Hydrocarbon production is currently provided at five comprehensive gas treatment units — three Cenomanian and two Valanginian. In December 2012, the first trillion cubic meter of gas was produced from the field. In 2013, the Zapolyarnoye oil, gas and condensate field was brought to its full design capacity of 130 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
